Denver

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Do some cultural sightseeing at 16th Street Mall and Denver Art Museum. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pearl Street Mall and Tattered Cover Bookstore. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Bear Lake (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Spas & Wellness (in Estes Park) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs). There's still lots to do: see a show at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, meet the residents at Denver Zoo, glide through natural beauty at Cherry Creek State Park, and contemplate the long history of Union Station.

To see more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Denver road trip planning tool .

Expect a daytime high around 87°F in July, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
